What the school says...

Maple Walk, judged excellent in all areas (ISI Inspection, March 2020), is a happy, vibrant prep school for boys and girls aged 4-11 in north west London, nurturing children's wellbeing and academic best through fun, kindness and respect for one another.

We provide a safe, supportive and stimulating environment with small class sizes for outstanding learning and personal development where children flourish, developing self-confidence, self-esteem and social awareness.

Maple Walk is committed to giving every child an excellent value, first-class education in the arts and sciences, traditional academic subjects. At the heart of the school is a growth mindset attitude that creates a love of learning and resilience, ensuring children are well prepared for whatever the future holds.

Opportunities outside the classroom abound too. Through sporting activities, first class music, art and drama, we encourage every child to find their own particular strength with many gaining scholarships at top independent secondary schools.
